Dear Parent/Guardian, 

Your child will be attending an event with multi award winning and bestselling author Juno Dawson on 8 February and will have the opportunity to buy personally signed and dedicated copies of her books.

Should you wish your child to be able to purchase books on the day, they will need to bring money with them in order to avoid disappointment (Juno’s new book Margot and Me, will be available at the discounted priced of £7 (rrp £7.99) and a range of her other titles will also be available priced £7 or at a special price of £20 for 3). If wishing to pay by cheque, these are payable to ‘Silverwood Book Events’.

Often pupils are very inspired to read the author’s book after such a visit and this is a rare opportunity for them to have books bought at the event signed and personally dedicated.

 

 

Margot and Me discounted to £7 (rrp £7.99), a range of Juno’s other titles available at £7 or SPECIAL OFFER any three for £20.

Queen of Teen 2014 Juno is the multi award-winning author of dark teen thrillers HOLLOW PIKE, CRUEL SUMMER, SAY HER NAME and UNDER MY SKIN. Juno is a regular contributor to Attitude Magazine, GT and the Guardian and has contributed to news items concerning sexuality, identity, literature and education on BBC Women's Hour, Front Row, This Morning and Newsnight.  Juno's titles have received rave reviews and her books have been translated into more than ten languages. 

Juno grew up in West Yorkshire, writing imaginary episodes of Doctor Who. She later turned her talent to journalism, interviewing luminaries such as Steps and Atomic Kitten before writing a weekly serial in a Brighton newspaper. In 2014 Juno became a school role model for the charity STONEWALL.

Research shows that author events in schools inspire children and help them on their journey to a love of reading. 

‘The impact of an author visiting shouldn’t be underestimated. These are the types of things that people talk about when you ask them what they remember about school.’ 

Times Educational Supplement 

‘Writers visiting schools can make a significant difference to a child’s attitudes to and enjoyment of writing, offering new perspectives on writing and what it can do.’ 

The Arts Council

MARGOT & ME is an epic story about love, death and – most of all – family. Fliss Baker is forced to live
with her bullying grandmother, Margot, in Wales while her mum recovers from chronic illness. In an
attempt to blackmail Margot, Fliss unearths Margot’s diary but, rather than dishing the dirt, finds herself
transported to Margot’s youth in 1941 – the height of the Blitz.
